Donegal will be delighted they cant play either Kerry or Mayo then!

Ollie is the stage that you go out at not determining which group you go into anymore, gone? I remember if Meath went out in quarters or semis of Leinster they went into one side, but if they lost in final it was another one.

You are correct , it is at the stage that you get beat that matters.

I know if Donegal lose to Tyrone , we go to A and if we lose to Monaghan, we go go B.

So it all hinges on what stage you get beat .

Each half of a Provincial draw goes to a side in the qualifiers.

The final though obviously has a team from both halves of the draw, so half the teams will switch sides when they reach the Provincial final.

I think the Munster and Connacht losing finalists are always on the A side because their final is earlier, although I could be wrong on that.

Meath are on side A in Leinster but if they get to the final they'll switch to side B. Dublin will be side B regardless.

Royaldunne Meath will be in Group A regardless because they will lose to the winners of Louth and Wicklow haha. See you in Parnell on Sunday. An Lu Abu!

That was my understanding of it too. The whole reason the A and B sections were introduced was to put a bit of structure to the qualifier draws - and a team only moves from A to B if they reach their provincial final. Dates and the order for the provincial finals can change year to year but the first 2 provincial losers will go into the A group and the second 2 will go into the B group regardless of what side they were on to begin with.

You will get the qualifier system.
From what I see you stay in either A or B right up to last rd of qualifiers.

No,all I'm saying is you stay on A or B side right up to the 1/4 finals where the connacht and munster champions play 2 winners on A side,avoiding repeat pairings if possible.
Ulster and Leinster play 2 winners on b side avoiding repeats.
Semi finals connacht or who beats them v munster or who beats them.
Leinster or who beats them v Ulster or who beats them.
